Sponsorship Opportunity Information

 

Several hundred researchers, practitioners and students in the archives, library and information science fields will be in attendance at the 5th Library Research Seminar. Attendees are in organizations that are your current or prospective customers. Connect with attendees by becoming a LRS-V sponsor. Sponsors have increased visibility, including signage, recognition in conference materials, and links from our website to yours. As a sponsor, the conference attendees will view your company as an integral part of the archives, library and information science community.

 

A sponsor can be the exclusive sponsor or may negotiate to share the expense of an opportunity. The dollar amount of your sponsorship determines your specific benefits: Platinum, $3,000 or more; Gold, $2,000 or more; Silver $1,000 or more and Bronze, $300 or more.
